Time for those damn transhumanists to follow through on their promises to give all of us biomech bodies.

It's hard to describe how much I hate transhumanists.  They are the libertarians of science, only dumber.  For every geek thinking up new extreme body modifications that serve no actual purpose, there are five Rachel Haywires bilking the gullible.  Most of them have a hard core belief that they will benefit from this sort of shit because they support it, the same way libertarians think if they just believe hard enough, they will one day be admitted to The Club.

They are all worthless, and we will one day march on their stupid, entitled bones.  Well, you will march.  I will ride my Captain Pike wheelchair thing, blinking "YES" every time I get a wheel on one of their pelvises.
Hey, I wouldn't count them out entirely. If recent events have taught me anything it's that not only is Transmetropolitan possible, it's probably inevitable by this point.

What pisses me off more than Gunn being fired in particular is the notion that this is the test run for a never-ending campaign of hitjobs like this.
And what pisses me off even more than that is that nobody wants to own up to the fact that this was always a flaw of call-out culture, and that while trying rapists and abusers in the court of public opinion is all well and good for people who otherwise would be untouchable, but can we all agree that shouldn't be the end goal? Like, isn't it time we started, y'know, fixing the legal system so victims can actually get justice? No? Just keep dragging celebrities cuz it makes us feel good? Well alright then.

That's not a flaw of call-out culture, it is the logical end result of call-out culture.  You may remember what went on here a couple of years ago.  That was basically a working model of what happened in the "real" world.  It was never, ever about justice.  It was about who the king-shit caller-outer was.  Who was the most morally pure tumblrista.

It took quite some time for me to stop being bitter about that.
Yea, at the time i figured the aftermath of that scenario would be the typical result, a kind of "crabs in a bucket" thing, where the biggest King-shit Caller-outer would eventually get too big for their britches and get called out themselves, and a sort of self-regulatory equilibrium would occur. But to see the whole business completely hijacked by Nazis, and seeing some people I had a bit more respect for continue on with their witch hunt even after they've learned who started it, has brutally crushed that illusion

I've come up with a term for this particular subsection of SJWs, btw. Mob Justice Warriors, or MJWs. Those for whom the feigned desire for social justice is just a means of getting more heads in the guillotine.

Upon years of reflection I have decided to join LMNO in the absurdist camp. And I brought símores!
i always wondered why no one ever put together absurdism and surrealism as a subculture. Like, you'd think some group of hipsters would jump at the chance to wear the silliest shit in the thrift store while waxing poetic about postmodernism and staring at pictures of giraffes on stilts.

Anyone spoken to therapists much? My appointment is this evening and I am REALLY not looking forward to having someone pick around inside my head, asking personal questions. Does one get used to it?

Therapy is less someone rooting around in your brain and more someone sitting with you while you clean out the metaphorical fridge. It can be embarrassing or awkward as you get to the rotten stuff, but it's good to have someone there with you holding the garbage bag open.
having gone to a therapist for the better part of a decade, i can confirm this. A good therapist is there to just stand beside you while you pull out all of your gross shit without gagging and barfing.

I'm down to be a cyborg.

so while we're writing off groups of liberals, can we also write off anyone who is fully aware that the campaign against James Gunn was orchestrated by the Alt-right, but still decries him and anyone who defends him, because apparently punishing someone for cringy tweets we already knew about ten years ago is somehow higher priority than NOT playing into the hands of Nazis?

Wife's been down with strep for a week, in the middle of her preparing for her final apprentice exams (floristry). I'm fucking exhausted. Not that I'm complaining, mind. Just looking forward to having my days in the usual routine.

I hope your wife gets better.  I am a little shocked that a combat florist would be knocked down by a little strep, though.
Hope you wife gets well soon.

also i would totally watch an anime about combat florists.
